Hey, the Democrats started the recession that was starting as Obama took office. It just wasn't the Obama Administration Democrats that started the recession, it was Democrats in Congress, namely two, who have mercifully retired in shame. The seed was planted long before that, but it was planted by Democrats. I presume they were just trying to get Hillary elected as Bill promised, but Obama served him better. Al blew it, not getting those hanging chads counted in his favor in Florida, even after the mayor guaranteed it. Remember? "We can win any election recount that is within a few hundred votes." Maybe you missed that boast. Or this one, "It is not who votes that matters, it is who counts the votes," Al Gore's campaign manager. Sounds vaguely communist, doesn't it?
